When dialing to establish a connection with ISP I receive the error "unable to establish a connection".  I hear the hand shake and just before the connection hits I get the error.  If I do this through IE4 I get no other error information than what I have listed, but if dial-up is activated through My Computer dail-up networking, I receive an extra error 745: An essential file is missing reinstall the Dial-Up Networking Files.  I have reload windows over the original without success. Unable to determine the file that is missing could you help me? By the BY this is windows 98 1998  new load.

DUNS ERROR 745
745 - An essential file is missing. Re-install Dial-Up Networking

Windows 95/98/Me

This error may occur if a dial-up networking .dll file is missing or damaged.

Microsoft has published an article describing how to resolve this problem. Removing and re-installing dial-up networking may not resolve this problem, and it may be necessary.
This error can also occur if the password list (.pwl) file is damaged. In addition to DUNS Error 745, other errors may occur including invalid page faults, a TCP/IP warning, and/or the computer locking up. See MS KB#154092.

Found that during system load it was telling me to leave the cd in drive and remove the floppy.  By mistake I removed both thus causing a partical load of the system files. Thanks again for the help.
